What Is the Story of Rantoul and Die?
Rantoul and Die is the potent story of four people struggling to make it in Rantoul, Illinois. Rallis (Derek Ahonen) is trying, but failing, to pull himself out of a depression long enough to save his marriage to Debbie (Sarah Lemp), a woman exhausted by her dead-end work and by Rallis’ neediness and his smother-loving in place of sexual passion. Gary (Matthew Pilieci) is Rallis’ best friend, but he is really trying to pursue Debbie. Callie (Vanessa Vache) plays a crucial role, both as Debbie’s boss at the local Dairy Queen and as the keeper of a secret that ends the powerful play.
